Need HELP with cordless phone range

dms1973November 17, 2013

I still have a landline and my cordless phone does not cover the entire area after adding on to the house. I'm using a 2 line (needs to be 2 lines) Panasonic KX-TG9382T which is a Dect 6.0 phone. Because its 2 lines I've been told that I cannot use the extender that is sold separately.

Does anyone have any suggestions for what I could try to resolve this issue. The house is 3400 sq ft and has plaster/lathe walls in the original part of the house which is a little less than the half of the total square footage. Thanks!

I trust you've already located the base station as centrally as possible to where the wireless handsets are used. Such a location should be a spot where the signal needs to pass through the fewest number of walls to get to the areas of use.

One alternative would be to use two different cordless systems (with different broadcast frequencies) to get one base stations located closer to each of two separated areas of use.

Another would be to use Google phone and forward your landline calls to your cell phone.

Another alternative would be to get something like an Ooma system that transmits calls over Wifi to their proprietary cordless phones.
